'Dancing With the Stars' winner Jennifer Grey recovering from back surgery




Dancing With the Stars fans can now breathe a little more easily -- winner Jennifer Grey had her back surgery last week and is recovering nicely. She'll be back to flying lifts in no time, we're sure.

Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr. told People he removed "a huge fragment" from the 50-year-old's back while repairing a ruptured disc, an injury that almost forced the contestant off the show after she felt tremendous pain following the first night of the show's finale. "I'm still recovering at home. I have to rest a bit more, but I feel great – completely pain free," Grey told the mag.


Bray said the actress "can go back to her family, pilates, dancing – just about anything she wants to do." Her fans are likely hoping she will be able to appear on a future stage tour, if there is one. First things first, folks.
